Remembering Brother Africa

March 1, 2016

Today is the 1 year death anniversary of Charly Keunang, better known to the world as Brother Africa, the homeless man whose death at the hands of LAPD was caught on video and went viral.

Today members of Los Angeles Community Action Network, Stop LAPD Spying, Black Lives Matter L.A. and the Skid Row Community gather at the steps of LAPD Headquarters that they “#CantKillAfrica!”

We have not forgotten that the LAPD let the officers who killed Brother Africa free withouth any charges file against them. We have not forgotten that one of the witnesses of Brother Africa is Trishawn Carey and continues to be in jail. Let’s get one thing clear here. Trishawn Carey is a political prisoner. #FreeTrishawn!

Here is footage of today’s demonstration. First is a great theatre play done by the amazing Suzette.

Here is video I took of today’s powerful peaceful demonstration.

 

These are articles from last year if people want to read how Brother Africa’s death took the nation by surprise.

Videos From Leo Santa Cruz vs Abner Mares All Out War

August 30, 2015

Last night, Boxing fans were treated to an amazing fight at the Staples Center. Leading to the fight, one had predicted that the fans were going to be half Santa Cruz fans and half Mares fight. But, ast the fight started it became evident that the crowd was majority Santa Cruz fans.

Leo Santa Cruz vs Abner Mares fight was a fight that was brewing for couple of years. It was this generations’ Barrera vs Morales. In that fight, we had Mexico City(Barrera) vs Tijuana (Morales). The Santa Cruz vs Mares brought the Mexican rivalry to another level as well. Michoacan (Santa Cruz) vs Jalisco(Mares). Not only was there Mexican statehood represented but this fight was also for the Battle of L.A.

The fight started as expected with Mares bringing his fight and aggressiveness to Santa Cruz. Throughout the fight there were very close rounds to judge but towards the middle rounds and the Championship rounds, Santa Cruz looked like the more active and the one who was more accurate with his punches. Mares appeared tired towards those middle rounds and appeared to pick up a 2nd wind in the last couple of rounds but it wasn’t enough to stop Santa Cruz volume punches.

With Santa Cruz winning a majority decision in what is the front runner for Fight of the Year, fans want to see a rematch for later this year. I would love to see them go at it this year but it all depends on what Al Haymon decides. If Santa Cruz doesn’t give Mares the immediate rematch, it will be interesting to see who he decides to fight in his next fight. Walters? Rigendoux? Hampton? Quigg? Boxing fans would just have to wait and see.

I recorded Rounds 1, 9 and 12 from last night’s fight. Enjoy and let’s hope we get SantaCruzVsMares2 later this year.

The PRO Native American Commercial During The NBA Finals

June 10, 2014

This is the commercial that plans on airing tonight during Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Heat and Spurs.

This is a very powerful commercial as it brings awareness to the Native American culture and pushes for the Washington Redskins to change their name.

Will the commercial and the viewers watching it force Redskins to change the name. In a world where a racist owner (Sterling) in the NBA was banned from being an owner, I think its time for the NFL to do the right thing and put pressure on the Redskins and have them change their name.
